Depositions are an important part of the litigation process in any case. However, due to the nature of an asbestos-exposure claim, depositions in asbestos cases are often unique in their importance and the challenges they present. The ability to take an effective deposition is crucial to a competent representation of an asbestos client. Illinois and Missouri play host to the most active litigation dockets in the country, yet each venue has different rules, customs, and procedures governing depositions. During this seminar, the speakers will provide a general tips for taking an effective deposition in any asbestos case, and then provide venue specific guidance for depositions that occur in Madison County, Illinois; St. Clair County, Illinois; Cook County, Illinois; and St. Louis City, Missouri.
